Thank you both; we have now found an old lady who didn't have any sort of tv who now thinks it's her birthday and Christmas combined! I hope her son can sort out how to get a picture from it without a digi-box. We are constantly reminded of Bulgaria's tolerance of unofficial dumping. Anywhere off th...

Disposal of TV

We have a 10 year old working telly which we need to dispose of, preferably not in a dumpster. Location Varna area. Any suggestions? Does BG have any official recycling culture?

You're lucky if you can get a skilled worker to work on a daily rate. We have been conned into paying more like 80 leva per day on the basis of a "price for the job", which turned out to take half the time we thought it must do at the price.

That is serious indeed. The uncertainty is another worry factor.
On the other hand, those who are selling up and repatriating their proceeds will be quids in. Swings and roundabouts.

The Wilting £

It just keeps on falling against the euro: this year our spending money on our BG hols will go 15% less far than last year. Kicking myself for not buying loads of Leva before the Brexit Referendum.

We're Still Here!

Well, surprise surprise: the world did not come to an end last night, as some nutters predicted (they seem to have gone very quiet all of a sudden!).

The world somehow became a lot smaller when the EU suckered us in. At least after Brexit the real big world will open up again (and that will include Europe folks!). Plus we won't have our laws and rules dictated by a group of 27 very different countries trying to pretend they have lots in common ap...
